** Click HERE for the Traverse/Acadia/Outlook Supplemental Instructions **

 

** 3 Options Are Now Available ***

Option 1: 

Buy strengthened brass gears + hi-torque motors in quantity of 1 set for 1 mirror or 2  sets for both mirrors ($49.99 / $89.99). Requires 24 hour epoxy of brass gear onto main shaft in your unit.  You will re-use your existing main shaft and epoxy on a new brass gear section.

 

Option 2:

Buy strengthened brass gears pre-mounted to a new machined steel main spiral shaft + hi-torque motor in quantity 1 set for 1 mirror or 2 sets for 2 mirrors ($64.99 / $99.99).  Does not require any epoxy cure time to install, its plug and play.

 

Option 3:

Buy a rebuilt complete motor drive unit with new hi-torque motor and brass gear pre-installed and tested ($229.99 minus $30 core return = $199.99).  Please note when buying the complete drive unit, you must choose passenger side or drivers side, and there is a $30 core refund so be sure to send back your old assembly in repairable condition.  Core returns are only applicable to complete drive units and when you are ready to return your core, please email paul@gruvenparts.com for instructions.  Your CORE must be rebuildable.  We cannot accept units which have parts other than the motor/spur gear broken as cores as we would have no way to rebuild them.

 

Other Parts Available :

We also carry a limited number of used parts to service these mirrors in case you loose or break something.  We have some of everything, so just email paul@gruvenparts.com if you need something.  We do now have some used mirror glass drive units for both sides - these are the little motorized units that actually adjust the angle of the mirror glass.

  

** Product Description **

GruvenParts.com is pleased to announce replacement strengthened BRASS spur gears and high torque INTERNALLY GROUNDED motors (OEM MOTOR WONT WORK WITH METAL) for the power folding mirrors on 2007-2014 GM trucks including Acadia, Traverse, Enclave, Escalade, Silverado, Avalanche, Tahoe, Suburban, Sierra, Yukon, and Denali.  Also fits ALL 2007-Present GMC pick-up trucks. As many have discovered, the folding mirror assembly on these trucks suffers from a thin, weak, plastic spur gear mounted to the main drive shaft.  The plastic spur gear cracks at the slightest impact or just wears out over time causing an inoperable folding mirror.  The GM motors also get weak and die quickly. Unfortunately, GM will only sell you a complete folding mirror assembly, which will cost you from $700-$1,200 ea after labor and paint, depending on the year/make/model.  And that $ would be wasted on another mirror assembly with another weak, plastic spur gear and weak electric motor that will also soon fail.  Don't waste time or hard earned money on more GM parts that will also soon fail!  

GruvenParts.com has addressed this issue by designing a strengthened spur gear made from solid gear BRASS with a thicker cross section to eliminate the stress concentrations which cause fatigue cracking in the GM plastic gear. We have also designed a replacement high torque electric motor to accompany this new metal gear. Our new electric motor is required when switching out to the metal gear, as the ground circuit in the OEM motor does not allow for a metal gear to be installed. You can buy the gear/motor combo for one of both sides, and with the spur gear pre-attached to a new main shaft, or loose. Loose gear orders require installation of the spur gear onto the main shaft using 24 hour epoxy - please refer to the DIY article link above.  We have thoroughly tested our redesigned spur gear and high torque motor using a new, OEM mirror assembly and computerized test equipment.  Our test samples barely showed any wear whatsoever, and the testing did include random wacks against the mirror, jamming the mirror operation as it was folding, and manually stressing the mechanism all in an attempt the break the gear.  Each sample was tested more than 5,000 open/close cycles and was still going strong at that point !  

This product carries a LIFETIME WARRANTY!  Provided you don't burn the vehicle, or otherwise smash the mirror into something, you can send back the motor drive unit to us and we'll replace the gear assembly and get it working again free of charge.  You would only be responsible for shipping under this warranty.

Gears and Motors Fit Both Passenger and Drivers Side Power Folding Mirrors.  

All 2007-2014 GM SUV's With Power Folding Non-Tow Mirrors Including Acadia, Traverse, Enclave, Escalade, Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon, and Denali.

    This replacement is perfect! took about an hour per side taking my time. I could not be any happier. Thanks GrĂ¼ven for an outstanding product.


  4. Exact match for my 2009 GMC Sierra 2500HD drivers side. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2020

    Your excellent video on how to replace the motor was spot on! I bought the
    whole rebuild (#3) and had no problems at all. Thank You.


  5. Same parts for 2014+ GM trucks - worked perfectly. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th May 2020

    Installed on a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 - relatively easy install, same steps as the Gruven video/.pdf although that repair was for a older body style.


  6. Awesome product with easy installation 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th May 2020

    Power mirrors stopped folding on my 08 Chevy Avalanche. Got the complete motor drive assembly replacement and it was super easy to install. Works like a charm again. Definitely recommend!!


  7. Works just as described 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th May 2020

    Fast delivery, outstanding customer service. It is much better than the original part.


  8. Great Improvement over the original system!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th May 2020

    Replaced the passenger side folding mirror broken plastic gear with the Gruven metal gear and new motor set on my wife's '08 Escalade. It took a little longer than I had anticipated, but the results are fantastic and well worth the work and the very reasonable price. The video instructions are accurate, easy to follow and the mirror folds twice as fast as the driver side mirror. I will be installing a Gruven set in the driver side mirror very soon. Great product, great price, fast shipping; you couldn't ask for more!!
